“We Do A Lot Of Dumb Stories”

August 6th, 2015


Yes, the narrative is now set. “America’s Quarterback,” Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston, is going to be an out and out interception artist because he threw a handful of picks… in two practices in the first week of his first NFL training camp!

If this isn’t filler for bad sports radio, Joe doesn’t know what is.

In this FOX Sports 1 video, Mike Hill tries to push this narrative, even hinting Jameis lacks the mental fortitude to be an NFL quarterback.

Good guy Peter Schrager lays down the law stating, “We do a lot of dumb stories in sports and this may be the dumbest.”

Also, if you watch nothing else in this video, by all means fast-forward to the final 15 seconds. You will be howling on the floor so much, your neighbors will want to dial 911. The final 15 seconds is a real scream.

    Ha ha ha ha Joe…. Realist will be all over those last 15 secs.

  2. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    As soon as Realist is back from the hospital after having an aneurism, he’s going to be having a field day with this one.

    Hahaha guys I was just thinking the same thing.

    His head may have already exploded.

  4. The Buc Realist Says:

    Lol, thats what we heard all last year as well!!! I am surprised that those talking clown shoes did not predict a 10 ten defense for the Bucs!!!

  5. JoeNUTS Says:

    Wow are we really listening to the flapping mouths at Fox from a bunch of non-players. Pfft…

    I dont buy the mental fortitude garbage either…I think he is strong in this dept almost to a fault…JW is a rookie so you can expect a lot of mistakes…you play on Sunday how you practice so the INTs is a little concerning….but the real question is can Lovie’s D bail him out when they need it most. Last year the answer was no but we had some non-fit players to our scheme…ie Hawk. I am hoping for different results but not sure enough moves were made to fill all the holes that were so glaring.

  6. Buc1987 Says:

    lol Realist are you okay? I mean I saw the 10 ten typo in your post and thought I was the only that makes typos around here.

    Do you need someone to call an ambulance?

  7. The Buc Realist Says:


    I am better now! In fact now, it makes me sad and not mad. I am sad that these “sports” analyst that do no research and just said that based on lovie’s rep that was 4 years ago!!

    They did not watch 1 game of the bucs last year. And even the 1 Joe who was so confident with the talent and lovie last year has backed way off to a wait and see approach!

    1 question is that if this head coach is so great at defense, when are we going to see it???

  8. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Top 10 defense final 10 weeks of the season in both points/yards allowed. Fact. Got rid of dead weight players and found 2 potential young solid starters if not more in McDougald/Smith. Most sacks in years. Best 10 week stretch defensively for like last 5+ years easy.

    There are more signals pointing to Lovie being a decent coach than just his time in Chicago. I’m glad we only won 2 games and had so many fluke losses because that’s what it took to get a QB. I still believe in Lovie. We will see what happens. I’ll eat crow if the defense sucks all year but I’d be conpletely shocked.

  9. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Now I’ll wait for Realist to explain how an idiot head coach got the bucs their best 10 week stretch of defensive play since the golden days. Surely it was some fluke. Surely adding a ton of experienced players at every position will make them even worse next year.

    Even if you’re trying to keep it “real” you’re being blatantly pessimistic.

  10. The Buc Realist Says:

    @Lord Cornelius,,,,,Challenge accepted!!!

    first off, if we get to pick and choose selected games out of a season, Does that mean Coach Schiano is the greatest Offensive coach the Bucs have ever had??? I mean if we select just a portion of 2012 its true!! right!!!!

    And here is the list of QB’s that you have selected that made the Bucs look better than they are, ( more than likely they treated the week more of a by-week!!!)
    Teddy Bridgewater
    Brian Hoyer
    Matt Ryan
    Robert Grifth III
    Jay Cutler
    Andy Dalton
    Matt Stafford (Blowout)
    Derek Anderson
    Aaron Rodgers (Blowout with the Flu and pulled muscle!!)
    Drew Brees ( no one wanted to win this game!!!)

  11. BrianBucs Says:

    All of these so-called sports “geniuses” both national and local can flap their gums all they want, but the truth is that nobody knows what kind of an NFL QB Jameis will be until he hits the field in real NFL games and does it.

  12. Idontwannahearitanymore Says:

    Damn, who woke up the trolls?

  13. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Realist still waiting for you to explain the defensive performance beyond acting like we faced the worst QBs in the league. Do you think all the other teams only play Rodgers/Brees/Brady/Manning lol??

    The only truly terrible QBs on your list are RG3 and Anderson. Hoyer was actually having a good year at the point when we played him. He had a lower QB rating against the Bucs than he did in 5 of his last 7 games going into it. ryan/stafford/Rodgers/breed are all franchise QBs. Cutler/Dalton are middle of pact and Bridgewater was arguably the best rookie QB last year.

    To the Schiano point I’d say 2012 was one of the nicer glimpses of what a good QB looks like in the history of this franchise and doesn’t have sh1t to do with Schiano considering how well Freeman played in 2010 with a different HC. Fact is NO ONE has gotten the defense playing well since forever and last years final 10 games were by far the closest thing. And 10 games is a decent sample especially considering it was to end the year after the bye; and considering every person knowing Lovie said the system has a learning curve.

    Got anything else?

  14. The Buc Realist Says:

    Sure, But all that time would be wasted on you, ( cannot talk sense to the senseless!!)

    Just be sure to act surprised when Lovie’s defense when put into a competitive game is not quite your “greatest defense in a 10 game span of your chosing!)

    And don’t forget to cheer for lovie when he demotes Frazier and takes over play calling duties to ” save ” his defense!!

  15. Lord Cornelius Says:

    It’s a waste of time because your points are all founded on subjective negativity.

    I never claimed they were a “greatest” anything. Simply top 10 to finish and the best defensive stretch the team has had between the last 3 coaches. All I’m sayin. 10 games to end the year is not a terrible sample for projecting the next year; although using anything to project anything in the NFL.

    Even if the Bucs have a top 15 defense that would be a big improvement over anything the last 5+ years lol. You act like we weren’t in competitive games when we lost 8 by 1 score. Again- your opinion is rooted in a subjectively estaished bias against Lovie. Maybe due to enduring so many bad years in general as we have

  16. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Although using anything to project anything in the NFL is dangerous* meant to say. So much changes year to year and there are so too many variables to account for

  17. DavidbigBucsFan Says:

    You know what so called realist? It is a waste of time for anyone on this board to talk sense to you because you are in love with your own so called superior intellect to the rest of us blind and less knowledgeable fans. Although Lovie helped bring in Jason Licht and Dirk Koetter as well as drafted a potential franchise qb and superstar receiver and mostly offense last two drafts you outright refuse to talk of any optimism for that sude of the ball he has done. All you do is bring up stats about what he did in Chicago to back up your stance but if anyonce else does it to prove that he took them to the playoffs and the super bowl you treat them like idiots. You pick and choose the stats you want to point out why we shouldn’t like him but the picture as whole is Lovie Smith is a decent head coach. Some of your kind oersonally attack him by calling him incompetent but you people refuse to see an incompetent man would never be allowed to become DC and HC of not one but two NFL teams. You crucify him for his mistakes but outright refuse to give him props for what he is trying to change now. There is no justifiable reason for your intense dislike of him. It must go beyond football. NO MATTER how well the Bucs do under him even if they win a super bowl you will never give him his due credit or ever like him as our coach. There’s like 30 other teams who have coaches you might approve of, so why don’t you go be a fan of their teams since you dislike our head coach so much.

    And predictably he wisely just moved on. I love it when folks take a stance and make a sap suka bag down.
